I would like to say first that Frederick has been my adopted town for 20 plus years and I love Frederick.
In response to Mr. Larry Bradshaw’s Oct. 11 letter about PA drivers needing to slow down on U.S. 15: I agree ALL drivers need to slow down, as well as just plain pay attention and DRIVE, and not just on 15!
I had the pleasure of meeting Diahann Carroll. One evening, between her shows at the Blue Mirror in D.C., I accompanied my wife on a backstage visit. The two old high school friends had to catch up on some gabbing.
This is in response to the immigration issues raised in Mr. Bugg’s letter of Oct. 8; in particular, the premise that our country was built by immigrants who entered it legally.
Why is the Frederick County sheriff creating all of this hoopla over a narrow audit to determine the cost to the county taxpayer for his 287(g) agreement with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)?
The Frederick News-Post recently reported the federal government spent $984 billion more than it received in the last fiscal year — a deficit $200 billion higher than the previous year!
I’m writing in response to the front-page article published in the Sept. 29 Frederick News-Post. The article introduced an interactive map on Frederick city’s website that allows the public to highlight a variety of problem areas around Frederick that need to be addressed by the city. The is…
Every time the minimum wage increase is brought up in our beloved local paper, the pitchforks come out in the comments section, and it’s left me a bit mystified as to whether I’m doing this whole business ownership thing correctly.
The Blue Ribbon School awards seem unfair to our countywide students. Did anyone bother to check out demographics of each school? I did! Urbana has only 5.9 percent of special education students, 5.9 percent free and reduced-price meals students and 0.5 percent English learners. Compare thos…
I noted on the front page of Monday’s News-Post a sign in a picture from the 287(g) rallies Sunday that states “Immigration Built This Nation.”
The meaning of the word ALL has become an important point in overlapping concerns between the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) contracts with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the Frederick County Charter, control over the FCSO and the signing of contracts, grants and a…
Two events scheduled to take place in Frederick this Sunday afternoon at 2 o’clock present a stark contrast to each other and a clear choice for all who care about the future of our community — that is, for all of us.
I love the way people try and make things what they are not. The rally on Oct. 6 at Baker Park is to support Sheriff Jenkins and his deputies in enforcing the law, and to show Jan Gardner and her followers that we do not want a sanctuary for illegal aliens.
The Republican Club of Frederick County (RCFC) would like to respond directly to the recent piece published in The Frederick News-Post. It contains a number of inaccuracies. The first is that the op-ed incorrectly states in its initial sentence that Sheriff Jenkins and the RCFC are hosting a…
I am writing in support of the rally on Oct. 6 by Frederick County Sheriff Chuck Jenkins, especially since some letter writers to your paper have misrepresented it as a “hate rally” which is totally inaccurate.
The Oct. 3 letters to the editor bemoaning the participation of the Federation of American Immigration Reform (FAIR) in the Citizens for 287(g) Rally on Oct. 6 are making two errors.
- Trump’s ‘unmatched wisdom’ leaves Syria’s Kurds — and us — in danger
- Pennsylvania drivers need to slow down on U.S. 15
- On minimum wage laws: Put down the pitchforks, please
- Questions about Frederick's cleanliness
- Why all the hoopla over a 287(g) audit?
- Appreciate Frederick for what it is
- A beacon of hope in Frederick County
- Not all of our earliest immigrants came here willingly
- Selection of Blue Ribbon schools seems unfair
- Pennsylvania drivers aren't the only problem on the roads
The debate about U.S. immigration policy is often a difficult and emotional one, but one that needs to take place nevertheless. Unfortunately, there are those who attempt to tamp down this discussion by resorting to name-calling and demagoguery.
Any serious effort to preserve and enhance downtown Frederick will focus on keeping the city police department downtown. Carroll Creek park, the welfare agencies and their clients, the merchants and residents of downtown need the police nearby. That enables the police to be part of the downt…
Sheriff Chuck Jenkins and the Republican Club of Frederick County are hosting a “Citizens for 287(g) Rally” on Oct. 6. One of the groups represented that day is the Federation of American Immigration Reform (FAIR), which is an organization that has been identified as a hate group by the Sout…
Your letter writer asks on Sept. 30 if anyone can explain how CO2 will harm plants and the Earth, given that plants take this gas from the air to live on. It’s a fair question, because the carbon-oxygen exchange was always presumed to be a stable system when I was in school.
In his column of Sept. 27, Syed Wasimul Haque says that Pakistan was formed on the basis of religion, while “India declared itself secular with no affiliation to any religion.” In the same breath he says “Sadly, Hindu extremists now dominate the whole spectrum of daily living in India.”
Here we go again, “We’re all in big trouble”: and it’s all because of that evil carbon dioxide (CO2). I would like to point out an excellent example of hyperbole displayed in paragraph five of the front-page item of today’s Frederick News-Post under Seth Borenstein’s byline. “The dire effect…
In a recent letter to the editor, County Council member Philip Dacey wrote that he considers the recently passed Livable Frederick master plan (LF) a “comprehensive plan on steroids.”
The mayor and Board of Aldermen should reconsider what seems to be the majority’s “favorite choice” of the Trinity School site for the police department’s new location. The city-owned property seems to be one of the few really good locations for a possible move of the Frederick Community Act…
